Product Details

TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy is a low-viscosity wood rot restoration and repair solution that seals deeper & cures stronger than industry-leading penetrating epoxies. It has no VOCs, no odor & is 100% waterproof once cured.

This 2:1 system is ideal for restoring rotten or damaged wood, or sealing new wood for lasting protection against humidity, salt, mold & mildew. It works by gluing cellulose (wood) fibers back together, sealing a bare, porous wood surface from the inside out. Double the penetrating power by mixing acetone with the epoxy resin solution in equal volume. Easy to apply by brush, roller, or inject via syringe. Surfaces may be painted or varnished after light sanding.

Choose from Traditional (65-90 F) or Cold Weather (40-65 F) formulas in Pint, Quart, 1/2 Gallon & Gallon kits. Bonus: Kit includes 2 stir sticks, and 2 paint pots.

Info & Guides

NO VOCS, NO SMELL.

Cleanup is easy. Wear latex gloves, wash off with soap and water. No solvents required.


APPLICATION NOTE: The wood must be bare and unfinished. Also, TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy will not penetrate and level well when applied over some stains. Always test an area first. DO NOT USE on top of Minwax oil-based stains.


TotalBoat Cold Weather Penetrating Epoxy is perfect for use during the colder seasons. Compared to our traditional TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy, our Cold Weather formula offers similar performance characteristics, but cures completely and reliably in cooler temperatures. Its tack-free properties also allow you to sand sooner.

WARNING: TotalBoat Cold Weather Penetrating Epoxy should not be used as a fast-cure epoxy in warmer temperature conditions because doing so can be unsafe and result in premature exotherm, brittleness, and improper curing.

Application Temperature Ranges:

  • Traditional formula - 65-90°F
  • Cold Weather formula - 40-65°F

Excellent product, excellent service, happy.
By Linda from Gulfport, Mississippi

Verified Purchase

I needed epoxy for several small jobs, so I ordered a gallon and got free shipping -- can't beat that. It's good to have some on hand, and the two components keep well in storage, so I have some left over for anything else that pops up. Linda

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Worked Great!
By Construction Momma from Central Valley - California

Verified Purchase

We installed a 3 inch thick redwood slab for a bar top, put two coats on and it looks fantastic. The product brought out all the wood grains and colors. It has the shiny coat that you can slide a beer across. Thank you and keep up the good work on this product!

This works amazingly well.
By DIY Mike from Hopinton, Rhode Island

Verified Purchase

I used this product to repair water damage to an older travel trailer that had a leaking roof. Some of the wood structure was softened and weak from water damage. I used this product to revive the integrity of the wood, and protect all the new material I replaced. I used a piece of the wood I removed as a test sample and I was impressed how far the epoxy penetrated, and how much stronger the wood was after treating it with the epoxy.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Seemed to work well - excellent customer service
By Honestjohnshowtos from boston, ma

Verified Purchase

Seemed to work well - excellent customer service. Had a very small problem with my order and Jamestown solved it instantly. I had the replacement the next day. Epoxy worked well, get the syringes too, great buy and they work nicely together. Be sure to wear eye and hand protection, the epoxy can squirt easily and if it got in your eye it would be a bad day.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Does All the Manufacturer Claims.
By Nobody in Particular from Michigan's Sunset Side

Verified Purchase

Didn't use it in a marine application. Due to excessive shading there were two bottom logs on a log cabin deteriorating on the outside to a depth of several inches. I used this product, thinned, two coats, and those logs are stabilized and solid. It works.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Yes would buy again
By Leon from Central Oregon

Verified Purchase

I put on inside floor of wood drift boat, seat tops and bow shelf. Even though thinned I apparently put too thick of coat. The epoxy spanned the wheathered checking but left ridges and did not provide a smooth coating. I varnished over the floor and then installed the walking floor because most was covered I choose not strip the bottom floor. I did scrape the seat tops and bow shelf. A lot of work. I then used the sealer and varnish for a better look. The gunnels were also done with sealer and varnish.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

good way to solidify punky wood
By tom from Lacey WA

Verified Purchase

Restoring wood members that are only partially punky helps reduce the removal of old growth wood. Using this penetrating epoxy in conjunction with the Total Boat fairing compound works great. I go at it in 1 go, a couple coats of the penetrating and then the fairing compound. I find no need to wait for a cure on the penetrating as they seem to be compatible.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
